People often experience stomach discomfort due to anxiety or stress. Changing the diet to something easier to handle or a bland diet can treat nervous stomach. Using antacids, such as Tums, can also treat this condition.
Nervous stomach may lead to more serious problems such as Gastritis. This is a progression from nervous stomach to a situation in which the stomach wall becomes inflamed and swollen. Treatment for gastritis is the same as for nervous stomach.

I'm not sure about when he's excited, but hubby has lots of stomach troubles when he's nervous, even to the point where he'll throw up! (Hope that's not too much info!) He said he was even so nervous before our first few dates (because I was his first and only girlfriend and he's so shy) that he would get sick before he'd come pick me up!

Anyways, a while ago he started feeling sick in the mornings even if there wasn't a good reason for him to be nervous, so he went to the doctor and the dr gave him Prilosec OTC, and that actually helped him a lot!

But if you just have pains then maybe you have a little different condition ... but I just thought I'd mention it as another possibility

I'm sorry to hear your having tummy troubles! I have something similar. My whole digestive system sometimes acts funny when I'm having an emotional experience. It got so bad when I was having a lot of stress and negative emotions at work that I wasn't able to eat or keep my food down. I had to take a medical leave of absence from work. You might want to think about getting it checked out. I saw three doctors about it, but in the end it was acupuncture that fixed me.

I don't know if the doctor called it anything ... Prilosec OTC helps reduce the production of stomach acid though so I guess it has something to do with that. (Prilosec is usually advertized as a medication to prevent heartburn, which is caused by excess stomach acid.) If you want to try it, make sure you read the directions first -- unless otherwise directed by a doctor, you only take it for 2 weeks every 4 months or something weird like that!

I am not sure if we have the same problem but I too have stomach issues. A lot of times I could be excited about a trip and then when every thing settles down my stomach will all of a sudden start acting up. It will start cramping and bloating and the only time I feel better is when I lay down!! That is a drag when you are walking around San Diego Zoo and there is no place to go!! It is a little like menstrual cramps but worse. If I push on my stomach I can hear it gurgling and feel the air bubbles. My guess is that it could be gas (sorry) or acid reflux syndrome but I am not sure what is causing this problem. It could even happen when I am at Target. It will hit me all of a sudden. I could feel fine for one minute and then the next minute I hurt. But I do not feel like vomiting. All I get are the stomach pains. Maybe I need to change something in my diet or maybe it has something to do with being on a regular bathroom schedule but not sure.

I have the same problem. If I get nervous or excited I get that butterflys in your stomach feeling. What I found helps for me are Altoid pepermint mints. They have to be pepermint though. When me and my fiance moved back to florida I was so nervous in the car. I kept chewing on those mints and they really helped. I also have IBS, Which makes me kinda bloated, with cramps. I eat about three of the Altoid pepermints and it really helps alot.

Thats so funny cause today I got really stressed out and nervous and I had the worst stomach cramps ever! I haven't had it this bad in a long time, and I was literally sick all day. I didn't have anything to help it either and I was a work and all our medicine cabinet had are band aids and aspirin. I had to suffer through it. I noticed if I took a deep breath or walked around a bit, I felt better. Thats so weird to see this post cause I had those pains all day!

It could be somekind of a milder case of IBS (Irritable Bowl Syndrome), supposedly up to 1/3 of otherwise healthy people have that.

Having this in an extra severe form I have tried almost everything and know that you should be really careful about trusting doctors too much, most doctors know to little about this and can give advice that makes it worse in the long run. I was on antacid treatment a long time and thought it was helping at least a bit, unfortunately antacid makes IBS worse over time and should be avoided. I´ve learned that antacids are supposed to work completely or it´s the wrong thing to use and can make things worse (giving that you´re on the right amount of a strong enough kind).

If it is IBS there´s not much to do besides learning to relax and accept the problem (sounds negative, but it´s an incurable decease and accepting this usually makes the problem smaller). In some cases a special case of hypnose is helpful, but it´s supposed to be hard to go through and hardly worth it if its a minor problem. There are drugs being developed that probably can help a bit, but most drugs they have tried hasn´t had more effect than placebo.

But check up with your doctor first, it might be something curable, and if it is it´s unnecessary to suffer.
